Stone to Stay

Friday, October 15, 2004

Its late, and I have to be up early... again. But the Tribune is reporting that Steve Stone will stay. The story is unattributed, and sounds like it has two different sources (a 'broadcast source' and 'sources')... but it says: "Stone's return is virtually certain."

Excerpt From:
Cubs won't toss Stone: Analyst awaiting official word after contentious year

by Ed Sherman, Chicago Tribune 10-15-04

"While sources indicate Stone's return virtually is certain, John McDonough, the Cubs' vice president of marketing and broadcasting, declined Wednesday to discuss the specifics of the analyst's status.

"At this point we're trying to step back a bit and get some perspective," McDonough said. "Hopefully, everything will be resolved in the near future."

Stone is under contract, with the Cubs and WGN-Ch. 9 holding an option for next year. They have until Nov. 3 to notify Stone of his status.

The Trib is also reporting that Pat Hughes will stay with Ron Santo on WGN radio, rather than jumping over to WGN-TV to replace Chip Caray as has been speculated by Cubs fans. Here is the link: Hughes' decision: stand Pat with Santo, by Ed Sherman.

Playoff Update:

I sure hope you're not only relying on me to keep you up to date, but for history's sake... here we go:

Yankees are up 2-0 over Boston, and Curt Schilling hurt his ankle and is doubtful for the rest of the series.

The Red Birds of St. Louis are putting a mighty whipping on the spacemen spiffs of Houston. Cardinals 2, Astros 0.

Both series are now heading on the road, and the Yanks & BoSox will be taking aim at the Monster, while the Cardinals and 'Stros are at the juicebox.

Its still too early to start changing any predictions (Yanks & Cards in 6)... but with Schilling's injury I'm starting to wish I had gone with Yanks in 5... plus, we already established by NL only specialty. As for the Cards and Astros, I'm still feeling confident we'll see six. I think the Astros will win 2 of 3 at home and LaRussa's squad will finish them off back in St. Louis in game #6.
